Any politician who promises to give you something that is *paid for by other taxpayers* is corrupt, whether their donors give a million dollars or five dollars. In fact, given the value of the stuff being given away by liberal democrats, the ROI for the small donor is huge.

No nation has ever given as much in blood and treasure to secure the freedom of other people.
